Cool.  I'd just try to stub out the missing functions for now if I were
you.  Maybe this is what you're already trying.

Last time I looked (though it has been a while) native netapi32 depended
on way too much stuff to have a chance.  The WinXP version at least
depends on all sorts of SID/Lsa stuff that aren't around.  The win98
version doesn't implement the same set of functions, and functions with
the same names sometimes have different arguments, so I suspect you won't
have much luck there either.

Your best bet is what you're doing: work on our netapi32 to get aclui not
to crash.  Fortunately it's only a few functions, and you can hardcode
values until you figure out what it needs.

Good luck,
